Hi I'm Tell

I'm a military brat.I'm a country boy.I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah. I have moved all over the USA. My Step dad was in the Air Force. I claim Alabama to be my home. It is where i spent most of my life. I am currently serving a mission in California. Before that i lived on a small farm where I rode my horse and raised chickens and many other fun things to help out the family. I went to college for two years before I left for my mission. In my spare time i played video games hung out with friends, worked around the farm, took ballroom dance lessons, shot guns and worked on my truck. i also had a full time job before i left. now i serve the lord and preach the gospel as a missionary

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My mom and dad are both members but at the age of six my family was separated. My mom and Dad both remarried and i lived with my mom and my step dad who was in the Air Force. Life continued on for while and at the age of Seventeen I lost my step dad. I fell away from the Church and went the complete opposite direction. I found myself to be miserable. i could only be happy for short moments of time. I often wondered why I was miserable? Where was all the joy and peace and happiness I once knew. I had a moment in my Senior year of high school when i realized i had to stick with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints but i did not act of this realization for another year afterwards when i truly decided to come back to church. After a great experience in the sacrament meeting or the first meeting at church i decided i need to come back and be active in the gospel. There was a lot of trials that came along with this decision. i had to give up my old life and start a new one. as i started to live the Gospel again i felt that peace and joy that i had longed for. then i made the choice to serve a mission. However It was not until i entered into the MTC (Missionary Training Center) that i took the challenge to read and pray to find the truth of the message we share as missionaries. However when i did ask in Faith and read with real intent on following the answer. I received that answer from our heavenly Father that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints it the church of Jesus Christ restored to the Earth again. So in short I am a Mormon because i know it is true and it has blessed my life.

How I live my faith

Right now i serve a full time. that is my calling in the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. As a missionary I volunteered to dedicate two years of my life to serving the Lord. I live my faith by teaching it. As a missionary i help others come unto Christ by teaching them about the restored Gospel. This chance to share the Gospel has given me an opportunity to learn it and live it. I live it because i know it is true. The Blessings I have seen in my life are incredible. However the only way to know it is true is by asking God and reading the Book of Mormon. So I live my faith by making sure i follow the commandment of our Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ and talking with everyone i can about this great message we have to offer as missionaries.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Family is so important because it everything we have in this world. It is where we learn everything. our first interactions as humans are with our families. Our relationship with our family members will affect the other relationships we have outside of our family. Family is key in this life, however more importantly is the knowledge that family can be together forever. This knowledge is another reason why family is so important. I know that my family can be together forever and this motivates me to action. This knowledge helps me to develop my family relationships more because i love them and want to spend eternity with them Show more Show less
